End of an Era

11 Apr

I was really sad to hear the news that after 27 years, Fashion Television has been cancelled. If you are like me, you grew up watching Jeanne Beker cover everything from high-fashion runway shows, photography, art and even socialites. I took a fashion journalism course (my first time around in college) and on the very first day our teacher told us, “no, you will not be taking over for Jeanne Beker when you are done.”  Fair enough. But, what fashionista hasn’t dreamed about going to Paris for fashion week and interviewing Karl Lagerfeld?

I just want to thank Jeanne Beker and Fashion Television for allowing a small town girl like myself to see runway shows from the likes of Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Valentino, and Alexander McQueen and exposing me to the wonderful world of fashion. I will miss the show and the wonderful job Beker did, but just like the world of fashion, things change.

Love her or hate her, Jeanne Beker changed the fashion industry. One of the best things to come out of Canada.
